black and white rings

A marriage is an important chapter in a person’s life but more importantly it is the first chapter of a partner’s new life. This can be both a blessing and a challenge. The wedding day itself is perhaps the most important of all as it marks the beginning of your journey as a married couple. A wedding ring is a symbol of this.

A wedding ring binds the couple for eternity as they face the rest of their life together. During the ceremony both the bride and groom exchange rings as they promise to be together “for richer for poorer, for better for worse, in sickness and in health, till death do they part”. The final two words, “I do.” marks the acceptance of this promise.

Most people believe that a wedding ring only bares significance for the women in a marriage but these people would be wrong. There are many different types of weddings for each religion such as Hindu, Christian and many more. The one thing that never changes is the importance of a wedding ring in the marriage ceremony.

For both the husband and wife their wedding rings are completely personal and entirely priceless. To them a wedding ring is perhaps the best thing they can get and something they will hold on to forever. If you’re looking into helping the newly-weds in planning their wedding then why not help them with the task of finding their wedding ring from Orla James.

The only problem with this is that the market for jewellery is so vast that it can be hard to choose from. Additionally some couples place a greater value on designer items but much like the options of jewellery available at antique jewellery stores, there are also endless amounts of designers.

The majority of wedding rings are made up of precious metals such as gold and silver however modern rings seem to be broadening their horizons with the use of platinum or titanium. This is because these metals are both more durable and fashionable in comparison to the traditional metals. Furthermore wedding rings are now including precious stones to make them that much better. These stones include diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires and much more.

Diamonds are considered the most valuable out of all of the precious stones due to its great properties such as durability. On the other hand there are other rings that are just as expensive but none-the-less worth it.

If you are on the wedding planning committee then make sure you do your research before helping them with the task of finding the rings. After all the married couple will be wearing them for the rest of their lives.

Wedding-3Contrary to what most people would think, weddings are not always fun to attend especially if you’ve seen a more weddings than you should in your lifetime. Why? There was no mobile bar essex, well we’re only joking but alcohol definitely makes it more bearable ! but for real — Because, you’ll start to notice that most of the wedding you go to all look the same. Same vows, foods, etc. So if you want to avoid that same old wedding feel, here are some things that you can do.

Personalised Vows

It’s your vows as a married couple, not just any vow, so if there’s absolutely one thing that you should personalise that would be your vows. While the traditional vows are customary, you can still inject things like “I promise to respect your personal space despite my nosy behaviour” into it to make it more about your relationship.

Newlywed Trivia

During the reception, you might wanna squeeze in some trivia time before or after your guest have eaten just to keep the mood going and let you guest know you better as a couple. Prepare a list of questions and have your officiant or master of ceremonies throw those questions randomly to your guest. It will get them into game mode which is always fun.


Your official wedding album will surely be full of posed shots. But it is also a good idea to have another with photos taken from a photobooth. You’ll see an entirely different side of your guest from these pictures. And besides, who doesn’t enjoy doing all sorts of funny faces in a photobooth? Your guests will love it! So look for  a photo booth in Berkshire from OMG.

Impromptu Performance From Your Guest

Though you probably hired a band or a performer for the entertainment in your wedding, don’t you think all your guest will crack up if one of them gets up on stage? If you know one of your guests sings or plays an instrument, request a piece from them. It’s your wedding, he could be shy at first but he’ll oblige for the newlywed, you’ll see.

Use Music

You can never go wrong with music to make a wedding more fun. Add your favorite songs as a couple, as an individual, your parents favorite dance song, and even those that have meaning to you as couple into the usual wedding songs. You won’t be just entertaining but you’ll also relive memories by doing so.


Everyone loves a good buffet to keep themselves full and entertained throughout the night. Why not add some personalised sweet bags by Tabetha’s Touch to your tables to cater for guests with a sweet tooth.

Event management companies handle different types of events. They have employees at their disposal which are experts on two or more types of events. With different event experts, event management companies can virtually handle any kinds of event. For clients planning to host a specific type of event, it is more efficient for them to approach event management companies to inquire if the company has an expert on the particular event the client is planning to host. Here are the types of events most event management companies, and DFA productions definitely can handle.

  1. Bridal Events – Once in a lifetime events such as wedding and bridal showers are far too important to be left in the hands of amateur planners. Event management companies have experienced wedding coordinators which can plan all kinds of bridal events to make it special for the bride and the couple. They event coordinate with professional wedding photographers and videographers or have one in their company to provide complete service.images
  2. Educational Conference – Educational conferences are held every day on different fields or industry. Though some are free, there are educational events which have VIPs, supervisors, businessmen or world leaders as participants and have high registration fees.

  3. Commemorative Events – Memorials, promotions or celebrative events are also handled by event management companies. For celebrations, things such as catering, entertainment and theme planning should be considered on this type of event. Birthday parties would have clowns, magicians or games for entertainment for children while adult and esteemed individuals have bands or performers for entertainment. On the other hand, memorials often focus on ethnic customs and sympathetic skills to match the purpose of the event.A04226
  4. Product Launch – Product launching hosted by large companies are grander compared to small businesses. Such event are handled by event management companies. Marketing and management skills are important to make the event a success. Though some would have entertainment for the event, most parts of the event are focused to highlight the product or services launched in the event. Product samples, t-shirts and other giveaways are always available in the event. Product launching rarely makes any profit since it is centered to product exposure in the market.Product Launch 1

Regardless of the event, it is important to consider the budget and the credentials of the event management company before choosing a contractor to plan and manage the event.

Hiring Entertainment for Your Wedding

Posted by on Nov 10, 2015 in Wedding Entertainment | 0 comments

Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 17.34.04There are many factors that you should consider when hiring entertainment for your wedding. The importance of investing in it can’t be stressed enough as it has the potential to make or break your memorable event. There are many options that you can choose from when hiring music entertainment. You can simply go for a DJ if you’re on a budget or you can hire bands, musicians and dancers to make your night memorable. Hiring entertainment can prove to be tricky, so here are a few tips from Medusa Management that should you choose to follow, will ensure that your wedding is a memorable one.

Early Booking

Booking early is very important as it not only means you’ll be able to get your first-choice entertainment artist, but you’ll also get a bargain on early bookings. Most of the popular bands for weddings are booked for a year or two. Early bookings mean you can get ahead of the game and secure your preferred musicians so that you can focus on other tasks of planning the perfect wedding.

Off-Peak Reductions

Many wedding bands that are hard to get a hold of in the wedding season are unable to fill their diaries in the off-peak months or weekdays. If your wedding will take place in October, November, January or February, you can get top acts for reduced rates and on dates of your choice.

Enhance Your Theme

Almost all weddings are based on a theme, most of which are general themes such as summer, vintage, festival and traditional. It’s important to make sure your entertainment is well suited for your wedding theme. If the entertainment of the wedding and theme don’t go hand in hand, your wedding can end up being a disaster.

Timing Your Entertainment

Weddings are never on time and there’s not much that can be done about it, but planning your schedule realistically can help. Timing your entertainment program right is important as you need to understand the mood of the crowd to make it all work. An ideal time for having entertainment is during the reception.

Space Available

Make sure the entertainment you are hiring is ideally suited for the space you have available at the venue. If you’re planning on a dancing act that’ll get everyone moving, make sure your dance floor is big enough to accommodate everyone present. There should be ample room for the performers and the guests so that everyone can enjoy to the fullest.

Research the Entertainment You’re Hiring

It can’t be emphasized enough how important it is to make sure you know that the entertainment you’re hiring is going to be a success or not. If you have seen the act before and enjoyed it, there isn’t much to fear. Go through their past performances to make sure that their music style fits your wedding theme. Make sure they have a manager or are part of a reputable firm.
